a good friend of mine wanted me to make sure i said that tonight. i got it out there. >> it's always good fun to have you, jesse. you have been entertaining and slightly crackers, but thank you so much. audience, thank you. >> thank you. i appreciate it, piers. hello, don lemon, the stories that you are talking about, b first i want to get you up to speed. a score in libya where two is m islamic groups are shutting down in libya in response to protester demands, and in beazi, protesters are trying to take back over the city. >> protesters are taking the situation into their own arms and taking on known extremists
in benghazi. >> there were dozens injured on friday night there, and we will have more. the retired agent of a cia agent wants to meet with the president of iran to plead for her husband return. he disappeared in 2007, and now pictures are up in hopes that mahmoud ahmadinejad will see them. he was seen two years ago pleading with the u.s. government for his release. >> 33 years of service to the united states, and i deserve something. >> the iran's president has repeatedly turned down requests from levinson's wife. at least 220 people were killed today in syria with government forces shelling aleppo and the government forces, and this comes as the
syrian free army are moving into territory that the fighters have seized. they have many defectors from the syrian army to fight the regime. >> i'm not fighting to create a democratic or republican job, but american jobs. president obama campaigned in wisconsin for the first time in more than 200 days. wisconsin may be a surprise battleground state. months ago, obama thought that the ten electoral votes were in their pocket, but then paul ryan was tapped at mitt romney's running mate. and here is what we are looking into for saturday night. take the lord name in vein, right? if jesus jokes are free game, why in some countries is the prophet mohammed above reproach. and another topic of region, and not the notion of it, but the
reality of why it so often turns deadly. a christian, a muslim and a jew walk into our studio for the conversation that is no joke. plus -- >> i thi it is a -- >> romney's rough week. secret tapes, disparaging words and sinking polls and pesky taxes, and even the mrs. weighed in. >> this is hard. do you want the try it? >> what republicans are really saying about mitt romney. >> this is a fact, my friend. >> jesse the body and power of the mouth. >> how about you run with me. >> you want me to be the veep? >> pondering a white house run. >> yes! >> but first, let's start with this, tonight, a discussion about the prophet mohammed, and a discussion that will my of you uncomfortable, but why should it? i'm in the united states which prides itself on freedom and the freedom of expression, but yet through the technology of televisi
television, people around the world can see this including radical islamists who have attack and murdered people all in the nail of the prophet mohamm, and to be clear, the motive here is to educate and understand and not to incite or instigate. that said, one of the big sto stories this week was about this, it is the new iphone and on this thing, you can take pictures or shoot videos and then when you are done, there are buttons that allow you the tweet it, facebook it or send it to the youtube for the entire world to see. any one at anywhere at any second is capable of broadcasting something insulting, so my point is that you cannot stop the march of time. so as i watch the violence overseas, i wondered in what century are these protesters livi living? and then i read a william saltan article that is called "internet videos will insult your religion." "ignore them and get over it." welcome, william. it is not just a democracy or the u.s., but it is technology and no matter the religious
belief, you cannot stop progress. >> no, and don, you made the point, you don't require a network anymore to broadcast hateful speech around the world. all you need is a video camera and internet connection and literally two people were responsible for creating and s disseminating this movie on the internet that inflamed the m muslim world. >> and you wanted to prove that it was a violent religion and played right into the script since most of them, william, have not seen the video. they are being manipulated in more ways than one? >> yes, the manipulators are on both sides. we have the crazies over here who want to infla imthe passions in the muslim world and get them upset, and then clericin the muslim world who are happy to collaborate with this and incite their side to discriminate against another population. >> and listen to this, william.
>> since our founding, our nation has respected all faiths. we are reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of other of others. >> let me state clearly and i hope it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. >> okay. that was part of the psa that the u.s. government spent $70,000 of ad time to run on tv in pakistan. not once did it mention free speech. so here's a question by being so sensitive and not telling some of these people as you say just to get over it, has the u.s. become enablers prolonging the inevitable that the handful of protesters are ultimately fighting a losing battle? >> i would not be so hard on the administration, because they may not have used the word free speech, but they are trying to convey something very complica e complicated and we are at the begoingff a big long
international conversation with the muslim world and what we are trying to convey is that just because we allow something to be broadcast, to be put on the internet in the country, does not mean that the government tor american people support it. it is a very complicated idea that we are trying to convey to people wholey in countries where that kind of thinking has not been allowed. >> you also write to the protesters that the hatred and the bloodshed will go on until you stop taking the bait. mockery of your prophet on a computer with an internet address somewhere in the world can no longer be your master or the puppet cleric who tells you the respond in violence. so writing that, william, in america interpret these words as tough love, but do you worry that what you have written will incite radical islamists to do violence? >> no, the opposite. the point i'm simply making is that since we cannot stop somebody with an iphone of making a video, we can't stop somebody with an internet connection to disseminate it.
the place where we can stop this is the people who are the target of this that they are trying to of fend is to ignore it. simply ignore it. nobody skam to watch -- nobody came to watch this movie in the theaters of the united states, nobody. so why can't the muslim world treat it the same way. >> we appreciate your article and thank you for joining us. so the name jesus does not strike fear in americans, but the mention of another prophet certainly can, and why should we as americans be afraid of how we reference prophet mohammed. next, i will ask a muslim. t, th, right? have a nice day. [ male announcer ] 80 delicious calories. fiber one.
[ male announcer ] 80 delicious calories. you see us, at the start of the day. on the company phone list that's a few names longer. you see us bank on busier highways. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank.
well, the most violent of the anti-american protests was in bangladesh where several people were arrested, but the biggest crowd was in lebanon where the hezbollah members were the brightest. and now the creator of the film is in hiding and why? because he has a $1 million bounty on him and encouraging that the taliban or al qaeda or anybody who can to kill the filmmaker. the mere mention of him can incite violence and destruction and death. and why? we are joined by a professor of policy and understand iing.
and for a country who prides itself on freedom of speech, why is mohammed off limit to people here in america? >> i don't think that mohammed is off limits, but we don't know much about who he is, is the problem. people who speak on behalf of islam and people who say they are experts are not able to communicate to muslims and what he means to muslims. so we don't have a conversation about islam that we deserve, so you get extremist voices from each sides filling in the gap leaving the vast majority of muslims and americans in the dark. >> but regardless of the civil riselized conversation here on television tonight, i won't stop what happened and it has not stopped the protests. >> well, i think that we have to be fair when we look at the protests what is happening m. the overwhelming majority of the muslims from grass roots to the religious leader and the government leaders have condemned the violent protests. if you look at the people
protest i protesting and a smaller percentage of them are protesting violently and even people with extremist opinions are pushing the protests, the protest are not about prophet mohammed, but they have to do with american politics and with humiliation and not treated as dignity and not part of society to be able to politically participate. so there are a lot of feelings of ail yep nation, and this movie is more for people to come on to the street s s to vent th feelings and these gestures are pushed by extremist views and political leaders to push their own cause forward. >> i hear what you are saying, but as most of us look around the world and especially in the western culture, we don't see many people coming forward who are secular muslims or people who are, you know, mar ore in t middle for a lack of better words, but not radical islamists who can come forward to denounce these activities.
we see the people on the streets and hear the words that you say it is a handful and not a lot of people, but most people don't believe it, because we don't see the other side or a counter weight that is as big or that can counter that protests. >> well, the counter weight is there, but we are not paying attention. we tend to show the things that feed into the narrative of what we expect the muslim world to be. pakistan is a people of 20 million people and a few thousand people is not a lot of people. and the same in benghazi which is a tiny population of libya, and they have come out against the violence and the killing of the ambassador. they have called for an end to it. but it is what we are paying attention to it and we are focusing on the things that produce the most images on tv.
>> i want to say this from roger cohen who writes, the muslim world cannot have it both ways and place islam at the center of political life and in extreme cases political violence while at the same time declaring that the religion is off limits to contestation and ridicule. is there a belief in the muslim world that you can have it both ways that the prophet mohammed or cannot in any way be depicted at all, it is a sense that the muslim world wants it both ways? >> i don't think that roger cohen is being fair and i don't think that he is being accurate. prophet mohammed is a deeply contested figure. most of the divisions between the sunnis and shias for example have to do with interpreting the prophet mohammed's legacy. it is offensive and not about meaningful criticism and debate, by it is about mockery and humiliati humiliation, and for a small percentage of muslims, and it is a small percentage, that mockery
is not acceptable for what their countries have received. so the storming of the egyptian embassy, it is about what they perceive american foreign policy is or about the prophet mohammed. i believe there needs to be a more honest conversation. maybe across the world there needs to be a et bbetter understanding, and maybe is the beginning of that. >> is there any way to depict prophet mohammed, in a caricature or in any way? >> well, i belief in the freedom of speech and as long as someone is not inciting violence directly, somebody can make whatever points they want to make, but from a religious or moral point, depictions of religious figures like john the baptist or jesus or the prophet mohammed does not mean i'm going out into the streets.
i will write a letter and say, we have a agreement to disagree. a majority of the muslims are not willing to get on the streets so protest peacefully or the smaller minority to protest violently. it is a radical fringe. >> do you believe that most muslims worldwide believe it is okay to depict the prophet mohammed? >> i don't think they agree with the ability to depict him, but at loft the shia muslims don't have the same taboo around depicting the prophet mohammed in images and there are also movies made about the prophet's life and sacred islamic figures so this has more the do with the political differences and the dem k demock ratization and opening it up for the first time to see their chance into influence society, and this is another
bump along the road. >> thank you so much. we have heard from a muslim, and now it is the christian and jew's turn. ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing a look twice. introducing a stunning work of technology -- the entirely new lexus es. and the first-ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i n't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

appreciate the comments@donlemoncnn. some of you are really weighing in. some of you believe that there should not be any depiction of prophet mohammed whatsoever. and some of you feel like how jesus is depicted in some films is another story. >> jesus. >> what? what? >> jesus. >> what? what? >> you said what. >> nothing. >> a little parody of the history of the world by mel brook brooks. how is it that images of jesus can be made into pair dis, but not the prophet mohammed? joining me is a bishop and ra i rabbi.
thank you both for joining us. not everybody likes to see a parody of jesus, but it is more accepted than prophet mohammed. >> is that to me? >> yes, rabbi. >> well, muslims need to understand that in any free and open society everything is fair game and what they really need to understand is that no one can insult islam but the muslims themselves, and it is the behavior on the religious people who profess a certain faith that will ultimately determine how that faith is depicted f. a catholic priest is found doing something illegitimate with a child, he has disgraced the faith. and if a rabbi has done something wrong, then he has defile defiled his faith. and if you go out to do something in the name of prophet mohammed, they are the blasph
blasphamers and you are defiling your religion much more because of the violence. >> and we had the same thought putting to show together. and we will have more on that later on, but before you respond, bishop, i want to play this that this week the idea came up that jesus may have had a wife and not long for the late night shows to go to town and have late fun with it. check it out. f. >> wouldn't that be something if jesus was married? i mean, he can turn water into wine, but he can't take out the garbage. maybe jesus was not his name, but that is what his wife used to yell when he came home late and it stuck? >> well, now, jesus, it sounded like maybe i got you at a bad
time, so i will check with you real soon, okay. >> take the chargers minus 1 1/2. it is my lock of the week. >> okay. will do, jesus. >> this was some pure uncut sitcom bait. >> he can raise the dead, but heaven help him if he forgets to put down the toilet seat. king james is the king of kings. >> so, rabbi, to your point, this is all over the network ne but no effigies and no burning of jimmy kimmel or others. so are these just words and word words. >> when i see this i can't help but laugh, because they are hysterically funny and when i watch a portrayal of jesus and even my boys like "south park" and very irreverent "family
guys" and they are r-rated but jesus pair drodies. >> but to the rabbi's point, you can laugh at it and you don't have to be offended by it. >> they are not talking about the jesus i know. they are skewering an image that people have about jesus that is really attacking organized religion than it is the actual jesus. >> are you offended by it all? >> no, because i know where jesus is. in some settings that are ecumenic ecumenical, christians don't like that all of the faiths are accepted and embraced, because there is a great feeling among evangelicals that anybody who is not a christian is not going to heaven and they are not right and going to hell but in all due respect jesus a big boy. you bring him to the party, and he can take care of himself and if i believe he is the king of
kings and lord of lords then somebody doing a mel brooks' parody, it is a nonissue. >> well, it is a nonissue, but you can stop the march of time. because you can upload this on to anything. >> yes. >> and if you want to live in a free and democratic society, that is part of living in a free and dell kratic society. >> yes. >> but, again, we are looking at it in a western way. >> yes, because when you deal with islam, you are talking about the national identity and it is not just religion, but this is what you would call a muslim country. so it is the same thing about someone insulting your mother or your family or your school or whatever, but when it comes to religion, you are dealing with the mysteries of god. >> so rabbi, we heard the effigies and nobody issued a fatwa or anything for those guys, so what gives here? >>le with, the book of mormon playing a couple of blocks from here, and that is utterly
blasphemous to the mormons, and two very important points. a lot of the arab brothers and sisters are living in countries that forget about criticizing prophet mohammed, if they speak out against their own leaders, they would be beheaded. try speaking out against king abdullah or in syria where they are fighting for their lives so there is lesson of freedom of speech. but in the hebrew bribl ible, a people are subject to criticism and nobody is infallible. and muslims are insistent that their religion is a pure mono th theism, and so why can't the humanity be promoted and looking at him in a more human pose. i say the same to christians and i wrote a book called "kosher jesus" that christians would be
less judgmental of the great culture wars in america, abortion and gay marriage if they look to the humanities of jesus and not the deity. everybody in fall hbl in the bible, and moses our greatest prophet can't do what every jew can do which is to go into the promised land because he sinned. so we have reached a stage where we are dismissing the humanity of religion, because we can't human i humanize the people who brought those religions into existence, and don, it is a scary time, because religion is becoming violent, judgmental and scary. i'm especially telling the world's 1.5 billion muslims who are my brothers and my sisters that we jews have a debt of gratitude to muslims taking us in 1492 when we were kicked out of catholic portugal, and how did they come to see anybody as their enemy? there is no country onnet ettaro
does more for the islamic brothers and sisters. we have liberated 27 million muslims in iraq. >> yes, rabbi, we have to wrap it up. i know you are passionate about it and we appreciate it. we appreciate it, but unfortunately only an hour for the show. we will have you both back, rabbi and bishop. it is almost the bottom of the hour and in a couple of seconds here so we want to get you up to speed to the other headlines and then continue on with the con r versation here. two islamic militia groups are disbanding and shutting down bases in libya in response to protesters demands. in benghazi, protesters are trying to reclaim the streets. >> reporter: the demonstrators began taking the situation into their own hands and storming various headquarters of known extremist militia s s in the ci
of benghazi. >> four people were killed and dozens injure d on friday night. at least 220 people were killed today in syria with government forces shelling aleppo and the damascus suburbs coming as the rebels of the syrian rebel armies have had many ex-soldiers who are have defected to fight the regime. straight ahead here tonight. >> i think it is a -- >> romney's rough week. secret tapes. disparaging words. sinking polls. pesky taxes. even the mrs. weighed in. >> this is hard. do you want to try it? >> what the republicans are really saying about mitt romney. like new teriyaki grilled shrimp for just $14.99! my name is angela trapp, and i sea food differently. actually... that way i could split my payments into little bite-size chunks.
i mean you feel me right? yeah. uh, sir... ah... [ male announcer ] layaway's back. earlier than ever. through december 14th. walmart. ♪ [ male announcer ] the first only the beginning. ♪ ♪ introducing a stunning work of technology. ♪ introducing the entirely new lexus es. and the first ever es hybrid. this is the pursuit of perfection.
okay. mitt romney is taking heat not just from the democrats and president obama, but he is getting criticism from the republicans, too. conservative columnist peggy noonnan called the romney campaign a rolling calamity, and bill kristol has said some tough things, too, and two republican heavyweights who may not be wanting to say things out loud, but we know one who is. we have anna navarro who is never afraid to hold her tongue. so why won't they go public with
the criticism? >> oh, don. this happens in the campaigns an happens at the ends of c campaigns. there's been a roller coaster of love and hate with mitt romney throughout the entire primary and a lot of reviews and a lot of it is constructive criticism for the campaign. there is a lot of frustration. most republicans agree that they'd like to see governor romney win this election. i can tell you that is the case for me and frustration on how some of the mistakes that have been made, and the fact that there hasn't been -- >> ana, this is me, and the thing that i said -- >> all right. >> and the way i teased this is what republicans are really saying about mitt romney. what are saying about the tape and what some deem as a rush to judgment on libya, and what are the republicans really saying and how are they feeling about it? >> all right. i will tell you what they are saying, don. as a faithful catholic, they are saying a novena and if you are a
optimist, we will win in a landslide. if you are a pessimistic, he will drag down the ticket, and if you are a realist, it will narrow up and still become a tight race and we are still not out, but there needs to be some changes made to the campaign and we need to reboot. governor romney needs to give more specifics and close the sale with the american people. that is what that the different republicans are sayg. some say it oud loud, some in their head and some in private, but there is a lot of talking going on. >> stick to the strict which is the economy, right? >> well, actually there's been some divergence on that. some folks want him to stick to the economy. they tried that for a while and speaking about nothing but the economy and you have seen him now, an governor romney and paul ryan expand the menu of issues. there have been social issues brought in and medicare brought in and the budget and the economy continuing to be a big part of it. okay. mitt romney's wife, ann romney
made candid comments this week when asked about republican critics. listen. >> what to you say to the fellow republicans who are -- >> stop it. this is hard. you want to try it, get in the ring. this is hard. and you know, it's an important thing that we are doing right now and it is an important election, and it is time for all americans to realize how significant this election is. >> i thought she was very candid there and very revealing and human reaction. >> i think so, too. i have met ann romney. she is a very supportive and loving spouse. it is hard. don, i'm good friends with cindy mccain and i will tell you that i was with her throughout the last campaign and it is a stressful situation for the spouses regardless if you are a democrat or republican, if you love your spouse, it is hard to see that person be criticized and taken to task in public. campaigns are a hard ball sport,
and it is tough on a spouse, but it also h comes with the territory. i can tell you that being a candidate is tough, being president in the critique and the reviews and the scrutiny that comes with that is tougher, but i absolutely sympathize with mrs. romney. >> ana, always a pleasure. thank you. up next -- >> this is a fact, my friend. >> jesse the body and pow ore of the mouth. >> how about if you run with me? >> you want me to be your veep. >> ponder a white house run. >> yes. [ male announcer ] now you can swipe... scroll... tap... pinch... and zoom... in your car. introducing the all-new cadillac xts with cue.

in politics things can go wrong and the president's wife learned that the hard way today. >> this election is personal to me, and it is deeply lly persoo the man i'm about to introduce. i have seen joe up close -- [ applause ] >> i am going to talk about that with my guest up next, but it is the obama and the romney campaigns are not exciting
enough for you and too mainstream or boring, we have the ticket for you. how about the wrestler turned governor and the running mate, the self-proclaimed king of all media? >> howard, you know what, if i run for president, now you are doing this tv show now. >> yes, "america's got talent." >> and you are making boatloads of money. how about you run with me. >> you want me to be the veep? >> yes. >> let me think about it. >> and you nknow dean obeidalla is with us, our favorite comedian and ana is still with us. and so if it is jess-ho -- >> well, ventura should run with somebody like lindsay lohan or gary busey, because it would be a much more fun ticket.
but the man was a governor and ran against the system. if ever a team for somebody to s say, i'm not running as a democrat or a republican, but a real candidate, but it is a joke when you say thatoward stern is going to run with you. >> well, i don't know, because i was listening it to on the way to the airport and i said to the team, we have to get him on, because there are a lot of people this the country who would vote for them, ana. >> i do, too, don. nobody expected him to be the governor of minnesota and so i do believe that there are a are the of people who would vote for him. i tell you i would not vote for him, because i left my country of nicaragua and when i say something that people don't like, they tell me to go back to nicaragua, but if these two were president and vice president, i would have to consider going
back. >> we love them. we do. >> i'm not living with him as -- i like him as a comedian in chief but not the commander in chief. >> back up a little bit and talk about joe biden here. when she said, i have seen him up close and personal. an ash ana? >> okay. don, i don't know how up close and personal i would like to get with this subject matter. i will tell you, good old joe is 69 years old, so i'm glad that jill is seeing him up close and personal, and you know, as i was telling you sit tough for the spouses, because they have to worry about what they wear and how the hair looks and now what they say. i remember, we know so far in the campaign, we have had ann romney unstiff ann romney and now we have jill biden seeing him up close. >> five seconds, dean. >> i love the fact that she enjoyed the moment and didn't just go through it or awkward about it, but embraced it and that is making it funnier for
all of us. she had a great reaction and very organic. >> great sense of humor. i enjoyed it as well. dean is going to come back and ana, we are done with you. >> good night to you both. >> good night. >> if you have a question that you didn't ask because you were worried about being judged, this is the segment for you. it is something qaa called the "judgment free zone" and we will talk more about the prophet mohammed and muslims and more up next.
okay. this is the judgment free zone and anger is one thing and acceptance for another, and for many pundits that is the most mystifying thing about the anti-muslim film. not just the violence, but the perception of some americans that a religion would condone killing a blas fe mer. >> a lot of people reacted how dare you do this? well, the liberals see this picture, and they say, that is not all muslims and that is true. not all muslims go in the streets and the point i was trying to make is that most muslims, at least half of them think it is okay to kill somebody if they insult the prophet. and that is a big problem. that is a clash of civilizations. >> so, dean joins me again. dean, our texts were burning up
the phones last night. >> yes. >> so we won't judge you on this, but is it a clash of civilizations? >> i don't think it is a clash of civilizations in the west and the east, but internally within the muslim community worldwide about how they want to be defined. let the radicals define us or stand up and say they don't realize us. bill maher was saying over the world that most muslims agree with the shocking statements unless he has evidence to back it up, because it is a true indictment, because every muslim i know does not support killing people. >> and i believe that whether it is accurate or not, i believe that many americans feel the way that bill maher feels. >> i agree with you. >> and in film and television and today i have done a lot of reading and watched two documentaries and saw one done right after 9/1 19/11 where thes
a gallup poll where there was 54% of muslims who believe there was no justification for 9/11 and the rest were nebulous and no comment and no feeling about it and then 7% said, yes, absolute justification. so that is a huge number of 1 bill yion people who believe the is justification for that type of action, and that is what bill maher is talking about. >> well, if you want to say, and i'm not sure what the number is and that was right after 9/11, but a few of the muslims who are radical and violent and vie haddists, maybe that is accurate, but the rest of us don't have to be defined by that and nor should we be. my fellow americans who are progressive have a different opinion when they get to the muslims an liberals and that we are all bad and secretly trying the do something and not as patriotic as the fellow americans and this is our challenge on some level as
muslims to go out there to make sure people know who we are and what we are about. >> well, i heard haroon talk about that, and why should those people define me. this is what i say to you and i want to read a quote to you from the late martin luther king jr. who was speaking in new york one year before the assassination and he said, a time comes when silence is betrayal. so, dean, do you believe that muslims who don't object to the protests are part of the blame for the bloodshed that comes with it, because through their silence -- >> you know, the question is on what will some of them do? look at for example indonesia, and 700 people protested out of 200 million people living in the country. 700 out of 200 million so the other 199 million have to get out to say to the other 700, stop protesting or say these people are radicals and i don't want anything to do with them.
keep in mind that 2 million indonesians bought tickets to a lady gaga concert. that is the struggle we have. we are defined by the worst element over and over again and that is true for many minorities. >> and that is most elements. >> and the other quote by martin luther king that it is not the stride and the clamor of the people against him that bother him, but the silence of the good people. and when bill maher says progressives should not like muslims because 70% of them support killing, that is horrible, because all we have left is progressives and moderates and a people on the right, we have lost them. >> this is the bottom line and i love that you and i are able to talk this way, and this is from the new york times today from roger cohenb who says, let the failure in tunisia and egypt and libya to control violent mobs of salafists enraged by mocking the
prophet mohammed be an excepted ambivalence and the let the rule of law overtake divine -- >> wl, i comprehend the words. >> well, we have to run. thank you, dean. we will be right back.
